I'm also interested if you have sleep working Tony.


I would be surprised if it were. I had a look at the apple developer pages and it says that the only USB dongle they
semi supported was a certain revision of a D-Link BB-120 which required a firmware flash rendering it unuseable in Windows. They seem to sell them in the US (discontinued in Europe) although I saw on a consumer site from someone who bought one for the purpose of using it with OS X that they are different new versions of the old model and are often
advertised with with the old picture. Apple doesn't seem to support them anymore favouring built in cards

Apple Bluetooth kexts seem to use the Broadcom chipsets now, my Belkin is the same Broadcom

Of course if anyone can prove me wrong ;)

PS
The firmware flash doesn't run on SL, even if you extract the bits with pacifist.

umm , I just realized that I can also wake my system up via power button - does this work for you LocusOfControl and Cosmin Petre?

I would be fine with using the power button - hope it works ;)

I had one of those d-link bluetooth adapters, but I have lost it....

If the system can wake via the power button then I will get one.

Sleeping or waking the machine isn't really the issue, I can wake by keyboard, USB insertion, removal, power button
(just tried it). The issue is that the BT HCI service on the dongle is dead on wake. everything else works perfectly.

I just have my dongle plugged into the front of my case, when I want to wake the machine I just pull the dongle out and in and everything works in seconds. It would be nice if this was automated.

Any DSDT experts know if DSDT can support composite USB devices?

By the way MM is great, I tried using my old mice (wired mighty mouse and logitech laser). The MM feels natural, the others feel horrid. Two finger sweep is great for internet browsing, such a pain to have to hit back/forward buttons with
the old fashioned mice

Thats good . Im so used to put my system to sleep - dont know if I could sacrifice that for the gestures.

Regarding Dsdt , this might be of interest. http://www.insanelym...p...2518&st=340

The UK Apple store are listing the Belkin mini usb bluetooth adapter for a "Mac Pro without a Bluetooth adapter."

http://store.apple.c...mco=MTMxMjYwMjE

Has anyone tried one with the Magic Mouse?

Good news

Thanks to a tip off from CruiSAr who tested an old BT mighty mouse with a Trust dongle and found it worked

I bought one the other day on ebay and it arrived this morning.

I can confirm the Trust dongle works with Magic Mouse, if I put the machine to sleep, on waking all the MM features
work as before

The part is

Great news Steve,

I'm ordering one.

Could you confirm one thing.

After installing the Apple mouse software update did you replace/change any kexts?

works with the default Apple install, no changes required.

If you haven't used MM before it may feel strange for a day or two but honestly after you wont want to use an
ordinary mouse again.!

Steve

hi, i have the magic mouse too on my 10.6.1 install with the wireless mouse software update.
i use a belkin bt adapter
i can sleep, i can wake from sleep (by pressing the power button, as usual in SL) but after wake from sleep, the mouse doesn't work anymore.
the only way to get it to work is to unplug/replug the bt adapter. it's plugged in the front panel, but it's a bit annoying to do it all the time.
Does someone have a solution ?
as i buyed the bt adapter just for the mouse, i wouldn't like to buy another one now...

If you notice my posts you will see I had the same problem. I tried to fix it but couldn't
I bought a different dongle on ebay for about £5 which worked.

The Belkin dongle and the Trust are shown differently in SystemProfiler so I suspect firmware
as they seem to use the same chipset
